Helicopter rescue for paraglider 

The emergency helicopter had to be called in to rescue a paraglider after a fall in Taucho.

The accident happened in a difficult area to access by land because it was on a hillside.

Rescuers descended from the helicopter and picked up the injured paraglider and his kite. The man, who had suffered a broken leg, was evacuated to the heliport in Adeje and then by ambulance to hospital.
